David Bowie’s Iconic Aladdin Sane Lightning Bolt is Now an iOS Emoji!

If you’ve ever used emoji (and you totally have because this is the 21st century and we all convey our complicated emotions through emoji), then you’ve probably noticed the little section of professional worker emojis where you can choose a cop, a construction worker, a private detective, a princess, or Santa Claus BECAUSE APPARENTLY THOSE ARE THE ONLY JOBS LEFT.

Anyway, that section is gonna have an update in the new Apple iOS 10.2 update for iPhones and it’ll soon feature male and female rock star emojis wearing the iconic lightning bolt face-makeup most famously worn by bisexual British rocker David Bowie on the cover of his 1973 album Aladdin Sane.

The new emoji set will also feature other professions like teachers, astronauts, firefighters, farmers, scientists, pilots, and a prince (thank you, FINALLY). There’ll also finally be a taco, a pukey face, wrestlers, and a dying rose because how else would you tell your wrestling boyfriend that your love for him is wilting after he fed you a nauseating taco?
